In May 2018, EAGA met with the Minister for Roads (Hon. Luke Donnellan MP) to discuss an equitable co-investment model for replacing cost-shared lights. EAGA’s business case report demonstrates that the region may forgo savings of $2.1M and 7,592 tonnes of emissions annually if the lights remain unchanged. An estimated up-front investment of $8.8M is required from the State to unlock and bring-forward a larger investment of $14.5M from EAGA councils, which would be recouped in ~5.5 years.
